  1. Include username in onAuth callback when a user has granted ID access.

    Some third-party developers request id access on their Extensions just for the purpose of getting a viewer's username to build a more personalized experience. The only way to do so is by relying on the Helix user endpoint on their EBS. The Helix team already modified any payload that has a user id to also deliver a username and save developers the extra step of using the /users endpoint, so it's natural for Extensions to follow that path.

  2. Ordering by date of helix endpoints

    Being able to order some of the Helix endpoints by date would be useful

    Follower for example would need in some cases 11k+ calls to the follower endpoint to just get the 100 followers who had followed for the longest time.

    This would also be good in the subscription endpoint if cumulative and streak get put into the Helix API

  5. /helix/moderation/enforcements/status - Return error messages instead of generic 500s

    When user IDs in the provided data payload do not exists, the endpoint returns a 500 error. Ideally this should return a more detailed error code with an error message related to user IDs.

  6. Viewer Only Extensions

    I was thinking, not all extensions need to be tried to a specific channel experience, and don't always interact with the broadcaster at all. Extensions like the chat translator, or maybe a TTS chat for viewers who can't read well, or visually impared, it would be great to have for users on every channel, not just channels where the broadcaster decides they want to use it. My idea is to have extensions that the view can enable on every channels, and possibly have the panel for viewer extensions be where the chat is, and possibly take up the bottom half…

  7. Add user_login to /helix/streams

    Some users have display names (the "user_name" property) that do not work for IRC or even in URLs. This requires an additional call to /helix/users with the ID to get the login which I find more crucial than the display name that is already included.

    Here are two examples:

    The user "riotgames" (ID 36029255) has a display name with a space. "twitch.tv/Riot Games" does not redirect to "twitch.tv/riotgames".

    The user "hanryang1125" (ID 103825127) has a display name with Korean characters. "twitch.tv/풍월량" does not redirect to "twitch.tv/hanryang1125".

    Neither of these display name would work for IRC, which goes for most display…

  8. Product SKU management in Monetization section of developer platform

    Currently the management of extension SKU's is only done via the Developer Rig.

    Since the rig is an optional, many people are developing / testing without using it & the fact that its a development environment, its a strange place to place/manage production SKU's. These would be better managed from the platform itself under the Monetization tab of each Extension.

  9. Streamer whitelist removal after extension is live - [Beta release]

    Currently, if you launch an extension with a streamer whitelist, there is no way to remove this whitelist once the extension is live.

    I would like to suggest being able to remove (And only remove not add) the streamer whitelist once the extension is live. This will enable doing 'beta-releases', which is a very common rollout practice and has a lot of benefits for the developer.

    In this way a developer can release an extension to a set group of streamers who want to participate in the beta test.

    Once the developer has determined that things look good and it…

  10. Add Ban-reason to users that are banned in /moderation/banned

    Moderators are able to add a reason/description whenever they ban people in chat (/ban [username] reason)

    This information is currently only available in the "not allowed to use" GraphQL-api, but should also be added to the documentet endpoints; /moderation/banned and /moderation/banned/events

    (Ban-reason is different from moderator-comments.)

  11. Standardize Transaction Timestamp in Bits Transaction JWT

    The given JWT representing the transatction receipt contains a time field that is stringified version of the Golang time object. Parsing in this format is significantly harder than a ISO standard format.

  12. Insight into percentage of users that interacted with extension

    Looking for a metric that helps determine what percentage of viewers tried out the extension. A developer can track the viewer count on their own, but they cannot guarantee that the extension loaded for each user. A metric is desired to calculate that X% of users interacted with the extension, not just a raw value of unique interactions.

  15. Allow filtering the JSON API response

    For example, the YouTube Data API has the "fields parameter" to accomplish this, an example being: items(user_id,user_name,title)

    https://developers.google.com/youtube/v3/getting-started#fields

    Thanks!

  17. Helix has no way to get title/game for a channel that is offline

    Using just helix it is impossible to get the title/status or game of a channel when it is offline.

    Which makes it difficult for third party tools to obtain title/game to check it should match what we want before the channel goes live, so that notifications for the channel (email etc) have the correct game/title.

    Additionally bot commands such as

    "!caster - caster link to caster was last seen playing game"

    are difficult to achieve using pure Helix

  19. Add subscriber count to a Helix endpoint

    Add subscriber count to a Helix endpoint. This is important information for many streaming tools. Scope is an open question; whether anyone should be able to see someone's subscriber count or if this is only visible by the broadcaster's authentication.
